El Camion now open at old RoRo's location

Or, at least they're open according to a sign we saw yesterday on the front door that said they were opening on Feb. 7. It's located across from Ballard High School where the RoRo's was (6416 15TH AVE NW).

El Camion has made a name for itself as a popular food truck around town, drawing an impressive list of positive reviews. Even tom Douglas praised the food truck.

Also, they applied for a liquor license for beer and wine (no spirits, though), so get ready to wash down those tacos with a cold one. So far, it looks like it still hasn't gone through.

It'll be interesting to see how the food truck philosophy adapts to the old restaurant location, which before RoRo's was housed by Zesto's for 64 years. We'll stop by sometime and see how the place stacks up.

In any case, Ballard High School students rejoice, for what will likely be a better lunch spot than what turned out to be a mediocre RoRo's. (But no booze.)
